Tamale Pie


Dinner with a Mexican flair!! My Tamale Pie is flavorful, delicious, and just the right amount of spice! With a “corn bread-ish” type crust this is a midweek dinner that will turn up the heat 💃 (a great cinco de Mayo meal too for next month)! My husband is IN LOVE with this and it tastes even better the next day(if you have leftovers🤣)!Its just another delicious recipe from my weight loss challenges(don’t forget to sign up!). Also since it’s Wednesday stay tuned for what I eat in a day Wednesday!!!
